A Seasonal Prayer for Oldsters

God of all seasons,

We are caught up now in “in between” seasons again. The summer and fall provided by You were glorious. Thank you. Winter awaits us with Wisconsinites all asking the piercing question, “What kind of winter will we get this year,” as though the listener has a cogent answer.

“In between” is how You created us – Father and Mother, life and death, nows and thens, more of yesterdays with fewer tomorrows.  But You made us to be Your people in this moment and the moment after that.

May each moment of our lives reflect Your seasons:

Your Summers of caring for others and cherishing friendships,
Your Falls for letting go what is unnecessary and a nuisance in our lives,
Your Springs for the exciting and new adventures that life unveils for us if keep our eyes open, and best of Your Winters keeping us warm and safe in Your protective care.

God of all seasons and God of all moments, We end this prayer the way we begin all prayers, “Thank You.”
